(I've been knocking it off on the weekends. This story was too intriguing to wait till Monday.)
His name is Clint Horvatt. He tells a harrowing story in the video above. Clint tells the story in great detail.
And he seems like he is either still in shock, or he's simply far too calm considering what happened to him and his fiancee on Friday.
Clint and his fiancee Summer Smith were driving to Gainesville, FL on Friday afternoon when Clint says Summer asked him to pull over and help a man they saw parked on the side of the road.
Summer, according to Clint, recognized the man's seemingly broken-down truck.
The man was black, over 6 feet tall, had his hair in corn rows, and was wearing an unzipped hoodie and work boots. He allegedly came up to the passenger side after the couple pulled over. He allegedly tried to rob the couple, then he shot Summer Smith in the head.
Clint Horvatt says he backed up and sped away. He wasn't injured. Clint managed to flag down an emergency services vehicle.
Summer later died at the hospital.
Now Clint seeks the public's help. A flyer is circulating in the Gainesville area describing the suspect's dark red Ford Ranger with a missing tailgate and drooping rear bumper.
In the video, FirstCoastNews.com's raw footage of Clint's interview, the man drops some oddly specific details. The killer took a wallet from Summer Smith with his left hand, then shot her with his right. The killer used a revolver. The interior of the Ford Ranger was also a shade of red, like the exterior.
Do you believe Clint Horvatt's story? I'm not going to give my opinon yet. Mind you, in the article linked below, it states that police say Clint "is not in any way a suspect in the case."
